i used 5 pieces and i think it is $ 18.00 a piece. They were tied to the rack via hd zip ties available at any electonics hardware store

i'm going to try it- lightweight, non-corrosive, easy and cheap!!!!

Hey Jay,
The chicken coop grating from farmtek is great stuff. Here are some pictures of the flooring on a Wolf fabrication rack.

The overlapping type is better for roof racks and is what Farmteck recomends.

Non-overlapping is the correct kind, it actually overlaps on 2 sides, not all 4... so when using on the roof rack it's smooth on the outsides instead of having a bevel... I'm 99% sure on that, its been a while since I ordered it.

Hey Jay-

I've had the FarmTek stuff in my 110's basket for a couple years now. Great stuff. If you want to see it up close, I'm down in Monument.

I have a thin aluminum single sheet of diamond plate on mine--love it and would do it again in a heartbeat. I riveted it down, FYI. I think I payed about $125.

Chance,

Thanks for the offer- I may take you up on that when I'm in your neck of the woods. In the meantime I was wondering how you fastened it to your rack? Gustavo used zip ties- I'd like to use something a but more stout as I'm concerned about UV rays breaking down plastic zip ties over time. I just ordered 5 sheets from Farmtek today, so I'll be installing it in a week or so.

thanks Josh- I have the same rack- it's encouraging to see how nicely it fits. I ordered 5 sheets- it's hard to tell, but it looks like you have 3 sheets- is that correct?

ps: Nicholas- I hope my hijacking of this thread is providing helpful information to you- For the price of the Farmtek stuff I think it's worth a try before throwing down serious cash on the Rhinopro stuff.

Sure thing; anytime. When I bought the truck it had aluminum diamond plate riveted up there. Heavy and it made noise. When I re-powder coated everything, I didn't put it back. The Chicken Coop is zip tied on with the widest zip ties Home Depot has (~3/8" wide or so). That was over two years ago and they still look fine (however, the 110 is always garaged). I too was worried about UV, but they're easy enough to replace when (if) they become a problem. Seems like I only needed three sheets for the big 110 basket...

And the 110 and 90 baskets are the same size. I just put the basket from my 110 on my 90.

Jay,
You are correct, I only needed three 2x4 sheets. And I used the heavy duty zip ties. I have had it on my 90 for a year now and unfortunately my garage is not tall enough to park it in there. But I have yet to have a zip tie fail.
